If presidential election took place this month, Prime Minister Robert Fico (Smer party) would move on to the second round with 44.6 percent of votes. The second candidate to make it to the second round would be Christian Democratic Movement’s Pavol Hrušovský with 15.2 percent. Fico has not as yet declared his candidacy.
The results stem from a July poll by the Polis agency as ordered by the TA3 TV news channel. Radoslav Procházka finished third with 14.8 percent and Ján Čarnogurský fourth with 11.8 percent support. Andrej Kiska would garner 9.6 percent of votes and Peter Osuský 4 percent. The SITA newswire published the results on Wednesday, July 31. The poll was comprised of 1,083 respondents, foreseeing a 58 percent participation in the vote, while 42 percent respondents did not know yet whether they would go to the ballot boxes or said they would not vote.
